The Labo des images
Images education at the digital era

The Education Department (or Labo des images) of Rencontres Audiovisuelles develops numerous educational actions around images and media: awareness-raising actions and educational screenings, creation workshops, supporting parents in the use of screens within their family, trainings for professionals…

The organisation works with every type of structure (libraries, municipalities, local communities, social centers, cultural centers, schools, companies, etc.) in the development of audiovisual actions.

Every year, around 100 actions are led in the Hauts-de-France region, for all type of audiences (general public, schools, publics that are physically or socially distant from culture, etc.)

6 main focus points determine the choice and the construction of the actions in terms of image education:
• Learning to read images and understanding their meaning
• Developing critical thinking around images and the digital tools surrounding us
• Watching the world with a critical eye, situate oneself in the world
• Introducing people to new audiovisual artistic forms
• Offering a space for practice and expression
• Creating social links

Rencontres Audiovisuelles received an Academic Certification to work in the school environment, as well as the Youth, Popular Education Certification.
